Biden’s Approval Rating Falls to 36%, Lowest Since July 2022


President Joe Biden’s approval rating in May dropped to its lowest point in nearly two years, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Tuesday, raising further concerns for his reelection.

Only 36% of respondents approve of Biden, decreasing by two points since April. This mirrors his lowest approval rating from July 2022.

When asked about economic management, 40% preferred Trump over Biden, who received 30%.

On border security, Trump held a significant lead with 42% compared to Biden’s 25%.

Reuters did not immediately disclose the sample size of U.S. adults. The margin of error was three percentage points.

  • NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist: A majority of independent voters believe Biden poses a greater threat to democracy than Trump.
  • ABC News/Ipsos: Trump is in a dead heat with Biden among suburban women.
  • USA Today/Suffolk University: Among Hispanics, Trump leads Biden by five points (39-34 percent).
  • Wall Street Journal: 30% of black men and 11% of black women intend to vote for Trump.
  • New York Times: Trump and Biden are essentially tied among 18-to-29-year-olds.

Biden’s allies are alarmed. “It should be a wake-up call,” CNN’s Van Jones said last week. “Young people are upset. And it’s not just the situation in Gaza — the economic prospects for young people are miserable.”

Polling “is rightly causing panic among Democrats,” Alex Shephard of The New Republic reported. “Voters know Joe Biden—and they’ve decided that they don’t think he’s capable of doing the job of president for a second term.”

“It’s hard to see how Biden can turn around this perception of him, however,” Shephard continued. “He will not be any younger on Election Day, and there’s not a lot he can do to combat concerns about his age.”
